• Translations of three graffiti type texts dating from the last years of ancient turquoise mine at Serabit el-Khadim in the Sinai blame jealousy for an ongoing drought. This drought is continuing due to the lack of magic crafters needed to overcome that negative emotional magic. These texts are in alphabetic Akkadian using a script which derives from Minoan Linear A and leads to the modern alphabet. The Minoan Linear A tablets from Malia on Crete (1700 BCE) mention envy release rituals performed by magic crafters, something that is apparently suppressed at this time. The suppression of magic indicates that the process of deity lordification is well advanced in this culture. Deities mentioned are Alu (life-growth source power), Yahu (revealer, manifestor), Su (full moon), and Thanu, “Reed-Boat” (dark crescent moon form of Egyptian Hathor and Mediterranean Ayu).
